EPSRC Senior Fellowship in the Role of Digital Technology in Understanding, Mitigating and Adapting to Environmental Change (Ensemble)

Digital technologies have a crucial role to play in helping scientists and other key stakeholders to more deeply understand the natural environment and its complex web of interconnected ecosystems. This research project has the goal of carrying out world leading research in the role of digital technologies and the natural environment, including environmental change. The project is built on three key pillars: 1. digital innovation as an enabler (Ensemble focuses on three major areas of digital innovation, namely the Internet of Things, cloud computing and data science); 2. science as a conduit (Ensemble investigates how technology can support a shift in the world of science towards an approach that is more open, data-driven and collaborative); 3. impact as intrinsic: Ensemble is working with academics, organisations and members of the public to gain insight and see breakthrough in mitigation and adaptation strategies related to environmental change.
